All Geiger counters sold by VWR Education Companies are for educational purposes only. They will measure different types of radiation including alpha, beta, gamma, and X-rays, but they should not be used for any health, safety, or medical purposes or to determine a human being's safety in an area that is suspected of radiation exposure. Our Geiger counters will detect different types of radiation, but unless you know how to properly calibrate them and interpret the data, these Geiger counters should not be used to determine safe or unsafe levels of radiation exposure.
